Whilst the early life and identity of Namrask is unknown, he lived on Riis alongside his race who were described as peaceful gardeners. The Eliksni were once graced by the Great Machine and with its blessings made many advancements as an interstellar civilisation. They also matured to the size of Captains as Ether was plentiful. However, this changed when the Darkness brought a "whirlwind" of destruction that destroyed their prosperous society. Namrask witnessed the horrors it brought and watched the Traveler flee.
Many revered Eliksni warriors, such as Chelchis, Kell of Stone, stood before the "maw", but fell to Oryx, the Taken King; a student of the Deep. When Chelchis fell, the Eliksni were struck with feelings of hopelessness and rage and many were forced to abandon their homeworld. Namrask was among the most prominent of Eliksni who ordered his fleet of ships to follow the fleeing Great Machine. However, in their desperation, Namrask abandoned many ships on Riis that had many hatchlings. He was also aware of Eramis sending her mate Athrys and their children to a different star system, but did not care as he abandoned the Houses who were unable to make war. He relentlessly pursued the Great Machine across the vast expanses of space and many ships rallied behind Namrasks fleet of Ketches. This period of space flight lasted for centuries and collectively known as the Long Drift.
However as the Long Drift persisted, the high-ranking Eliksni neglected their old customs and adopted new means of survival. They established a new social hierarchy where disgraced Eliksni were docked into subservience and Ether rations were reduced among the population to starve them into social control. The Eliksni no longer held their past roles of being builders, caretakers, physicians, negotiators, but instead turned into warriors and scavengers. Namrask was instrumental in helping make this an Eliksni law where basic workers such as farmers, healers, weavers were reduced to the labour of a Dreg and forced to steal what they can with a pistol and a knife.
